It is the stable salt form of pyruvic acid and has undergone more than 30 years of clinical research for its effectiveness on fat loss, weight loss, endurance and overall safety when used as a dietary supplement.

Magnesium has an important part in the Krebs cycle (the process through which the body converts glycogen to energy), thereby enhancing the fat burning mechanism of the body. Magnesium also plays a role in the release of insulin and the maintenance of pancreatic insulin production cells. L-carnitine is an amino acid, the more L-carnitine available – the faster the fat is transported and the more fat is utilized for energy.

Easy Hoodia Plus
Easy Hoodia Plus suppresses appetite without any detrimental effects. It contains Hoodia Gordonii (a natural appetite suppressant), biological active chromium and 5-HTP. The most powerful mechanisms that control appetite are blood sugar levels and Serotonin levels. When you are depressed, you are also more likely to eat more (because of your lower levels of Serotonin). Serotonin is the brain’s “happy” neurotransmitter and is build from and amino acid called Tryptophane. 5-Hydroxytryptophane (5-HTP) is a precursor to Tryptophane and stabilizes the brain’s Serotonin levels which will leave you feeling happier and less likely to overeat.
